Ken-Tool debuts wheel weight hammer
Ken-Tool has released its Automotive Wheel Weight Hammer (Part Number 35361) designed for installing and removing clip-on wheel weights on autos and light-duty trucks.
The hammer is 11.5 in. (29 cm) long and 3.5 in (9 cm) wide. It has a non-marring, replaceable polyvinyl strike face that is 7/8 in. (2.25 cm) in diameter, making it an ideal size for all automotive and light truck applications.
The fiberglass handle features an ergonomic design to provide the technician comfort with or without gloves, and to reduce fatigue. It is designed for constant use in commercial environments with a rubber grip which resists common shop chemicals. The fiberglass handle and grip are shock resistant and do not transmit as much vibration as steel handled wheel weight tools.
The Ken-Tool 35361 Automotive Wheel Weight Hammer works with all types of clip-on wheel weights -- lead, zinc, steel and coated weights. The anti-marring strike face protects the surface of aluminum wheels, painted wheels and chrome-plated wheels from any potential damage caused by an errant hammer strike.
Each hammer is packaged in a hanging poly bag and comes with an additional chromoly removal hook.
To support this new hammer, Ken-Tool is also releasing an Automotive Wheel Weight Hammer Refurbish Kit (pn 35362). The kit includes a new anti-marring impact face, chromoly steel hook, hook set screw, and hex-key wrench.
